A concerned father is being hailed as a hero after he took matters into his own hands and tackled a pervert who was taking upskirt photos in a Target store. The culprit, using what appeared to be a cellphone, lacked subtlety. When he tried to get pictures of the man’s daughter, though, things ended badly.

Ismael Duarte in the Target in Cypress, California Tuesday with his wife and 15-year-old daughter.

“Duarte says he went into ‘protect mode’ when he saw the 29-year-old man named Jorge A. Ibarra Jr bend down, put his phone on camera mode, and allegedly angle it towards his daughter,” Daily Mail writes.

The images are still from the store’s security camera, mostly. They may be hard to interpret at first as both men in this altercation are bald, have the same skin tone, and are wearing tank-tops.

The footage shows Ibarra bending down to take pictures. Duarte, seeing this, kicks the phone out of Ibarra’s hand and it flies across the checkout area.

Ibarra anxiously follows the phone, but Duarte keeps on him. He didn’t fully secure him, though, and Ibarra ran out to the parking lot. Duarte followed him and took a picture himself, of the license plate on Ibarra’s car.

Ibarra was arrested Wednesday by the Cypress Police on suspicion of invasion of privacy.

Duarte’s daughter wasn’t the only alleged victim from that visit to Target. Ibarra was seen at another point in the store following another woman.

“My daughter, and the girl that actually was getting their picture taken without her being known — that’s what got me,” Duarte later explained to reporters.

“It’s very disgusting. It’s disgusting that he knew exactly what he was doing. If he went to different Targets to do this, how many other stores did he go to,” Duarte’s wife Angelica added.

“So how much, if any, video did he get of my daughter? I’m not sure,” she said.

Police have not said if the phone, or any images were recovered. The do suspect Ibarra had worked other stores in the area, and have video footage of him from another Target already.
